For the virtual kickoff of the GAIN group we built a
self-hosted workadventure instance, which we call 2d-world. It is shut down now, but the maps which we used are lying on the server at Hetzner which hosts this website. This means you can use the maps with a workadventure instance of somebody else. If you choose to do so, be aware that you are leaving our website and the server where it is hosted. We do not know what information is collected about you if you use our map together with a third party instance of a workadventure. Be aware, that the 2d-world requires access to microphone and video, so only use it with a workadventure instance, which you trust. Also we are not responsible or liable for the content of any third party links inside the 2d-world, see the section about the liability of content in the legal notice.
